Grace Digital must have adopted the slogan, “Go big or go home,” because the EcoBoulder Waterproof Bluetooth speaker from their ECOXGEAR speaker line is, well—B.I.G. This thing is huge—and heavy. The EcoBoulder comes with a retractable handle and wheels. From a distance, it could easily be mistaken for a small travel suitcase. It also doubles… Read More

Once again, it’s The Gadgeteer’s version of “What’s in your wallet?” or in this case, bag. This year, I’ve decided to reverse my trend of loading up a backpack by slimming down—my bag, at least. I’ve put away my overly bulky, but wonderful Everki backpack and have moved to the svelte, leather Waterfield Maverick messenger… Read More

I've always had a soft spot for Fugoo speakers. Their rugged build, good sound and incredible battery life won me over. However, the original Fugoo speaker and newer XL version are a bit on the expensive side and anyone on a restrictive budget would be hard-pressed to justify buying a Fugoo speaker no matter how… Read More

Even though I’ve reviewed a few backpacks to hold my gadgets and stuff, this is the first bonafide suitcase I’ve reviewed. I don’t travel much for my job, but when my wife and I travel, our cheap carryons are nothing but a pain—and kinda embarrassing when seen at an airport. So when the very attractive ec-bc… Read More

FiiO is a fascinating company. In an age where people are increasingly using smart phones as their sole source of music, FiiO flies in the face of that trend by releasing portable digital audio players (DAP) that don’t do anything else. The market for DAPs is actually growing owing mainly to the exploding headphone market… Read More

When people choose speakers, they often think size and price should dictate what's best. That kind of thinking is false. The most important factor in buying a speaker is, “How is it going to be used?” When I reviewed the Audioengine HD6 wireless speakers, I said that “Once again, Audioengine has made a pair of speakers that… Read More

A couple of years ago, I bought the Adonit Jot Touch stylus to go with my (then) new iPad Air 2. It was easy to use, came with over 2,000 levels of pressure sensitivity, had a fine point tip, and had great build quality. I tried it out with some note taking and a few… Read More

I have a warm spot in my heart for Torque Audio. In an industry full of “me too” products, this small headphone company has managed to be different with their customizable t096z earphones and t402v headphones. A couple of months ago, they sent me a pair of the new AMHE303 Mercedes-Benz Limited Edition X Torque… Read More

I previously reviewed a portable battery charger that sports 20,400mAh of power, which will charge my iPhone about 4-5 times before running out of juice. Not bad, but what if you need something much bigger yet (sorta) portable? Anker has answered with the PowerHouse—a monstrous power supply that packs a whopping 434Wh (appx.120,000mAh!) of power… Read More

You can’t exactly call Pyle’s new Sing and Groove speaker portable, but since it comes with wheels and a retractable handle, you can call it transportable. The Sing and Groove looks like any suitcase you might see rolling all through airports. But this ain’t no suitcase. The Sing and Groove is a 300 watt speaker powerhouse with… Read More

When I reviewed the Thinksound On1 headphone, I came away impressed with their good build quality and warm, inviting sound which belied their monitor name. To my ears, monitors are all about accuracy—even at the expense of fun and engaging. That’s where the On1 headphone failed and succeeded. Now, Thinksound has replaced the On1 with… Read More

It could be argued that the Jawbone Jambox started the portable speaker craze. But did you know that the science and engineering behind Jambox’s success came from Soundmatters—a small audio company begun by a NASA engineer? It’s true. The late Dr. Godehard Guenther developed the Soundmatters FoxL speaker, the predecessor to so many speakers we… Read More

If you’ve owned any of Creative’s Sound Blaster Roar Bluetooth speakers, you know that they put out amazing sound for their size and their price. However, the latest iRoar version is not the bargain the earlier Roar speakers are. It’s use of premium materials and upgraded audio has placed it on another level—right up there… Read More
